What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose OSU? “I really connected with the Coach (Nick) Meyers and the rest of the Coaching Staff at Ohio St. I wanted to be at a large school with a big time athletic program. My older brother Brandon is going to Ohio State also and it will be great to continue to play with him in college.”
Outlook for your High School team? “We lost a few great senior players but we have most of our team returning from last year. We hope to build off of last year’s Section V Championship loss and get back to the final game.”
Thank You: “I would like to thank my parents for their continued support over the past few years. They have made it possible for me to attend and participate in a lot of great events for lacrosse. I would like to thank my High School Coach, Andrew Whipple, who has taught me the game of lacrosse since I was little and continues to push me to get better. I would like to also thank my Sweetlax Club Director, Kevin Martin, who has done so much for me the past three years regarding my college recruiting.”
Other schools considered: Maryland, Syracuse, Virginia, Cornell
